He rented the track a week ago and wasn’t happy with his first run of the day, but he continued to tweak the new setup he was trying and by the end of his practices, had the car just how he wanted. “We wanted to rent the track because we were trying something new, and it’s definitely feeling really good …now, that I think we have a great shot at this next Unity race in the series.”
Waterbury, VT – The American Racer Three Star program is designed to recognize three teams in no particular order of performance that had outstanding races at American-Canadian Tour (ACT) U.S. Tour events.

The Three Stars are chosen by ACT officials and will receive certificates for use of a free American Racer tire at a race of their choosing during the 2015 season.
